Centre for Digital Built Britain


Our Challenge

CDBB’s vision of the future involves buildings and infrastructure that are “smart”, capturing data about performance to predict when maintenance will be needed, to understand how users are engaging with the services they provide and to ensure that they are as efficient, sustainable and resilient as possible in a changing climate.

Our Solution

By applying research to real-world buildings and systems, CDBB and partners are developing the tools and guidance the built environment sectors need to embrace digitalisation. From wireless sensor networks that capture the performance of multiple buildings at the same time, to city digital twin interfaces that predict future needs in order to help planners develop better transport services, the living laboratory tests and develops technology that will underpin the digital built Britain of the future.
